Real, raw, poignant and filled with love, Bittersweet undresses the fairy tale of adoption to expose the reality of life within the system of placing ” a child that is difficult to place.”  The author reflects the the challenging life of adoptive parents of children with unknown challenges. The struggles are real and contemporary opening conversations for treatment, care and family support. This book represents an important read for anyone living the challenging system of adoption…. Reverend Patrick Lewis

Our experience showed us that adoption is a process, love cannot be turned on by pushing a button, nor is it a safe process for other siblings without a great deal of understanding and sensitivity.  Adopting a “difficult to place child” can work to the advantage of each individual.

Bittersweet also shows the latest professional review of the available literature and resources to assist one on their challenging journey.
